“The aim is to develop, test and optimise new materials (plastics, metals, etc.) different from those provided by manufacturers of the technology that would enable meeting the needs of new customers and the demands of existing customers in order to find and expand to new markets in their application. It is hoped that many sectors that currently cannot make use of rapid prototyping technology due to the limitations of the materials can benefit from this technology, increasing their competitiveness.”
